Ecological Design II: Worn Out/Broken In

ARST 320
Spring 2023
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: IDEA 320, ENVS 321
Course Cluster and Certificates: Integrated Design, Engineering & Applied Science Minor

This course will function as a design studio that examines the afterlife of material production. While designers have traditionally focused their attention on the creation, distribution, and consumption of new products, this course asks students to carefully consider everything that follows those acts. By scrutinizing the use, care, maintenance, repair, and eventual demise of designed objects, students come to understand the intended and unintended consequences of making. Rigorous observation and research lead to the creation of analytic drawings and models for presentation at project reviews.
